The Greek Petition for Local Xbox Live Support

          

Since the launch of the Xbox 360 in 2006, the Greek Xbox 360 community has developed a strong presence on the Xbox Live service. We estimate that there are already several thousand local Xbox Live users, including many people who imported their Xbox 360s before the local launch.

Sadly, the fact that Xbox Live is not officially supported for local users means that most of us have needed to resort to workarounds such as registering as Xbox Live users in countries such as the US and UK with the apparent approval of Microsoft Hellas. 

Many users are forced to import memberships and gamerpoint cards via international sites such as ebay.co.uk, usually paying a premium price for these product keys. Now, with the introduction of tighter regional control for Xbox marketplace content, we fear that we will be left out in the cold.

We, as dedicated Xbox 360 fans, would like to see Microsoft give us the same level of service and support as gamers in the rest of the world.


Update:
Hi Georgios, thanks for your message.

I understand your frustrations about Xbox LIVE in Greece. I'm really sorry I cannot offer any promises about this, but here at Xbox we are always feeding back thoughts and comments like yours. I would urge you to continue campaigning for LIVE in Greece so that your voice is heard.

And thanks for all your hard work on [Link Deleted] - I love the site!

Thanks!

We, the undersigned, therefore appeal to Microsoft to:

*Issue a statement that clarifies the status of the Xbox Live launch for Greece and puts all the rumours currently circulating to rest;
*Set up local billing facilities and pricing models as soon as possible to encourage the growth ofthe local Xbox 360 community; and
*Make provision for existing users to easily migrate their profiles from other countries to the localXbox Live service (for free or as close to free as possible).

We believe that Microsoft's Xbox 360 brand will benefit as much as the Xbox 360 community if these steps are taken. The Xbox Live service is a major competitive differentiator for the Xbox 360 and one of the console's most important features.

Xbox Live could play a vital role in cementing Xbox 360's position as the top next generation console in Greece. It's an important opportunity for Microsoft Hellasand we urge you to grab it with both hands. Your customers in Greecedeserve the same level of service and support as gamers in the rest of the world,especially given the loyalty that has been exhibited by the Greek community since before the local launch of the Xbox 360 platform.
